All programs currently in progress will be cancelled immediately and refunds processed appropriately. New programs scheduled to start within the next 30 days will be delayed or cancelled. Course changes will be provided by email to those affected. Where programs are cancelled, refunds will be processed to credit cards in most cases. Cheques will be mailed where original payments were processed by cash or debit. While this decision is currently applicable to programs starting on or before April 20, 2020, please be advised that the timeframe may be extended as this situation continues to evolve.
